Thanks for the feedback!
Why would you lose water pressure only on the kitchen faucet which is directly behind the wall to the tub and toilet and bathroom sink if they are fine?
Answer . The problem could be as simple as a clogged screen in your faucet. It also may be a low flow gasket which is in the faucet to reduce water usage. Has this alwys be…en a problem or is it a new problem?
What could be wrong if you installed a new sink in the basement and there is no hot water pressure in the house?
Answer . \nOne of the valves that you closed while hooking up the hot water to the sink was probably an old gate valve... It broke and did not fully re-open.
Answer . Make sure the drain line and the vent are cleared. Noises like that are usually caused by either restricted flow or a plugged drain vent.
Check and see if the water line going from the dishwasher to the disposal has enough slack to run up and over the connection to the disposal.If its just running along the cabi…net floor and straight up into the disposal that's the problem.Its called an anti siphon loop
Why would the hot water in the bath and basin have little pressure in a new bathroom suite that was just installed when the hot water in kitchen is OK?
Answer . \nIt could be many things: undersized piping, valves not fully opened, valves/strainers/aerators clogged with debris, or, simply the stuff on the 1st floor has mo…re pressure than the stuff on the 2nd floor due to elevation. If it is a problem you may want to have a licensed plumber look at it.
Answer . First check with your city engineering (water/sewer) and see if they are working on any pipes in your area. If not then get a plumber up because you possibly cou…ld have a leak in one of your pipes. If there isn't a leak, then call Rotor Rooter because often (if you have trees near your property) the roots can clog up the pipes. I had this problem once.\n. \nRemember, the further away your pipes are from your water tank the longer it takes for hot water to start when you turn on the tapes and water pressure may be slighter than another area in the house.
70ish psi if your on city water, well waters gana be less
Try removing the aerator and cleaning it, or fitting a new one.
there may be a slight blockage in the sewer line
is could be a waste line problem where the gradient is wrong or your sewer line may be blocked somewhere. Stoppage down stream
Did you remember to turn the supply line back on? Was there a plug that needed to be removed before connecting it?
Check the screen and aerator in the spout for debris that may block the openings
A blocked pipe. The water can not go down the pipe, so it comes out in your sink.
When water disappears down a sink, it goes through pipes and eithergoes into a septic system in the city or a septic tank in thecountry.
Your faucet may be clogged. If you have good pressure elsewhere in the house, this is your most likely culprit. You may just have crappy overall water pressure. If you don'…t have good pressure in the tub or elsewhere, consult with a plumber about installing a pressure tank to increase your water pressure.
Check the Aerator for debris in the screen. Unscrew it from the end of the faucet and rinse it out then reinstall.
When large amount of water is poured into the sink with the garbage disposal where the dishwasher drains would a one way valve help with water backing up into the dishwasher?
The pump in the dishwasher should keep the water from getting into it.
